The Opera episode of the Futurama is the highlight of that season (a season where they took risks at the expense of quality) if not the highlight of the whole show. The Opera satire is dead-on. Yes, I've been to operas. I try to be a well-rounded elitist.
I haven't heard the Switchblade CD. I think it's the same one that came out on Trust No One, but my order is held up in Sweden, apparently.
I love the old stuff. Not quite up to par with Isis (nothing is, in my opinion) or Cult of Luna, but it was always up there. I really want to hear the euro Jesu EP, though, see what Justin Broadrick has been up to.
